Tara

I have always been very active and enjoyed working out, but I was getting sick of the same old gym routine and used to remember how much I enjoyed it when I "ran" in college. I say "ran" because I would mostly run on a treadmill and obviously did not run nearly as frequently or as far as I do now. I had been thinking it would be fun to attempt to train for a half-marathon and then a few days later I received a flyer for Train to End Stroke in the mail. I went to the information meeting and I was sold! Being the competitive person that I am...mostly with myself...I said screw the half I am doing the full. A few weeks later I went to training kickoff where I met Kristin and after chatting we both realized we went to college together...Chico State!!! After several of our weekend training runs it was apparent that Aron, Kristin, and I were not only training together, but we were forming a friendship that would last long after our 1st marathon..SFM!!!

Aron and I participated in the San Jose Rock'n'Roll half marathon where I was introduced to Julianne. Soon after I met Maritza the morning of the Nike Women's marathon, my 2nd full marathon. Before I knew it we all were meeting for weekends runs and it has snowballed into much, much more! Aron decided it would be fun to get a group together for the Napa to Sonoma half marathon and logically we needed to come up with a team name. Julianne threw out a few names and the RoHo's, "Running our Hearts Out", were born!! Kristin designed a logo and we now are officially a force to be recogned with!! haha I feel like I have known these wonderful ladies for much longer than the several months that I actually have. They motivate me and inspire me to push myself. I love having them in my life and feel so grateful that they all have a crazy obsession with running that I can relate to!!!


Last year I completed 2 half marathons and 2 full marathons and I am beyond excited for this upcoming weekend where the RoHo's will be running our 1st race as a group!!!

Hey Tara and Kristin! I've been following Aron and Julianne pretty closely for awhile and for some reason haven't been able to cross paths. LOL. I just saw that you guys when to school in my little town and thought WOW these girls are amazing! I live in Chico now and grew up in the East Bay. Small world hu? I'll be following "Running our Hearts Out" and hopefully we can finally cross pathes out on the trails.
